Arsenal , Lyon eye U 23 Eagles striker, Emmanuel Dennis

Arsenal, Lyon Chase U23 Eagles Forward DennisIt has been reported that Arsenal have reportedly made a £12m offer for Club Brugge striker Emmanuel Dennis.

According to Turkish outlet Fanatik, Arsenal and Lyon have both made £12m bids for Dennis as he looks set to leave the Belgian club this summer.

The report also claims that Fenerbahce are interested, but are not willing to match the offers from Lyon or Arsenal.

Dennis scored seven goals in the Belgian top division in 26 appearances this season, with a further six goals in cup competitions.

Unai Emery can call upon Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette up front but the departure of Danny Welbeck means that youngster Eddie Nketiah is the next most senior striker in the Gunners ranks.

It’s tempting to conclude that there are areas of Emery’s side that need improving more urgently than their striking options, but it would be understandable if the Spaniard wanted a third striker through the door this summer.

The calibre of the other sides in the chase may suggest that Dennis is not a world-beating prospect, but Arsenal’s best approach in their current situation is to take younger players and try and blood them into stars.

Dennis has obviously made a big impression in Belgium, but his club team-mate Wesley could perhaps be the better bet.

Image result for eteboTurkish powerhouse Fenerbahce have  jumped to the front of the queue to sign  Leicester City  and Arsenal target  Oghenekaro Etebo from Portuguese side Feirense.

The combative  midfielder, who is expected to start for the Super Eagles against Senegal’s Teranga Lions in their friendly affair in London on Thursday, has been in sensational form for Feirense, becoming a cult hero at the 5,401-capacity  Estádio Marcolino de Castro since his arrival from Warri Wolves in 2015.

Etebo, who  has been likened to Manchester United  midfielder Paul Pogba  for his creativity  and combativeness, has been linked with Premier League holders Leicester  and  struggling Arsenal for a summer transfer.

But  reports in the Turkish media  claimed that Fenerbahce met with the player and his agent  in the Eagles’ Crowne Plaza Hotel camp in London on Wednesday and that the result was positive.

Some sections of the media in the European country had reported that Fenerbahce’s  representatives would  meet with  Etebo this month.

According to  Fotospor, the Yellow Canaries’ representative  Hasan Cetinkaya told Etebo the  plans they had for him and urged  the 21-year-old to join up with his compatriot Emmanuel Emenike, who has resurrected his career since he returned to the Istanbul giants after   a bad loan spell at West Ham.

Turkish Football said Etebo’s agent met with Fenerbahce and agreed a deal in principle, adding that the Fenerbahce only needed  to strike a deal with Feirense before a contract can be agreed.

Etebo became one of the hottest properties  in Europe  after helping Nigeria win bronze at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

The player, who was instrumental in the Eagles  Russia 2018  World Cup qualifying victories over Zambia (2-1 in Ndola) and Algeria (3-1 in Uyo)  last year,  has provided one assist and scored one goal in 15 league appearances this season for Feirense.
